Hyperlinked text in job instructions

Sancho Leath 12 months ago in Home Portal / Smart Projects updated 4 months ago 7

Has anyone found a way to hyperlink text in the job instructions of Smart Projects? XTRF Customization claims this is possible, but I haven't found a way to make it work yet.


When adding a URL with or without https, or an email address, in the job instructions of the Home Portal, this is rendered as a clickable link in the Vendor Portal job instructions. But how can you render hyperlinked text in the Vendor Portal, e.g. "Click here for further details" (with hyperlink pointing to specific URL reference)?

How to implement MT/MTPE into fully automated CAT tool integrated project?

Jelle Maes 1 year ago in Home Portal / Smart Projects with CAT integration updated by Wim 1 year ago 3

Hi community,


Are there any memoQ integrated smart project users who implemented MT and MTPE into their processes?

Any chance to share insights on how you set up the automation part of it? We are aiming at a highly automated process, obviously.


Ideally we would like to have a separate process template for that, but CAT tool integrated process steps are reportedly not cloneable. So for now we'll work with regular CAT tool integrated process steps, mapped with the available roles in memoQ. This means we'll have to look into other options to automate: price profiles.

But here we stumble upon the roadblock of fully automated provider selection rules. We can filter on categories matching the correct provider, but unfortunately not the correct vendor price profile will be used... as job types from these steps are 'translation' and 'proofreading' which are used for regular translation and proofreading jobs in the default price profile.

Does anyone see or use another workaround that meets the "highly/fully automated" requirement?


Thanks a lot!

Copying Tasks for Multilingual Quotes

Heidi 1 year ago in Home Portal / Smart Projects updated by Wim 1 month ago 3

I am trying to give Smart Projects another chance. I searched for this issue in the forum but couldn't find a matching topic. Is there no way to copy a task (receivables) from one language down to 10 more? It seems quite tedious to do it manually 10 times.

Finding vendors who've done # of jobs for a specific client?

Seyma Albarino 2 years ago in Home Portal / Smart Projects updated by Marek Joniec (XTRF Product Manager) 2 years ago 2

We want to identify potential editors for a specific client. In order to be considered, these vendors must already have worked on 50 or more translation or transcription jobs for this client. I'm having trouble pulling this data.

In the Vendors module, I can find vendors who have done at least 50 jobs, including at least one job for this client. This means that I'll sometimes find vendors who have done more than 50 jobs but only one or two jobs for the client. I don't want them to appear in my search because they aren't qualified to be considered for editing. 

In Projects > Jobs, I can find all the jobs a vendor has done for this client, but it's time-consuming to tally the number of jobs per vendor. 

How can I find vendors who've done 50 or more jobs for this specific client? Thanks.

System and user time zones

Sancho Leath 2 years ago in Home Portal / Smart Projects updated by Laura Jimenez 2 years ago 11

I could not find a UE thread or release note on this topic. Is anyone aware whether this issue has finally been fixed in the latest 8.x patches?


While the settings allow to differentiate between System and User time zones, this has not worked since its inception. Example: System time zone is the time zone of headquarters. User time zone varies depending on where the branches and vendors are located, or where you are currently working from if traveling. IP sets the User time zone. But to avoid confusion when working over several time zones, the System time zone is supposed to standardize time entries (project planning, deadlines, vacation planning, work logs, etc.).

Default specialization for clients

Laszlo Kovacs 3 years ago in Home Portal / Classic Projects updated 3 years ago 4

Do you know of a way to set a default specialization for a client?

It should be pre-selected whenever you create a project for that specific client.

Exporting margin per language

Robrecht Belien 3 years ago in Home Portal / Smart Projects updated by mark 2 years ago 11

Hi,

SInce the question about the word count was answered in a great way. I have a similar question for the margin. (We are using smart projects) 


Would it be possible to create a VC on job level to get the margin for that language combination? This would help us checking the jobs. 


Currently we report on margin on project level as a workaround.

Time required to vet new vendor's profile?

Seyma Albarino 3 years ago in Home Portal 0

I'm finding that it takes much longer than I expected to vet each individual new vendor's profile - this includes checking rates for services, viewing the attached resume/CV, looking up the vendor's professional website/LinkedIn profile, contacting references, etc. How long does it usually take VMs to vet vendors? Which sections do you make sure to view versus ignore until needed later, when the vendor is already working with you?
